Acid Jazz are proud to bring you this compilation album which features some of Japans’ finest Neo-Mod and “J-Mod” bands on one compilation.
These tracks have been specially selected by Acid Jazz who ventured to find music to excite the modern listener. This venture led to the discovery of the following collection of songs and the overall discovery of Japan’s uber-hip Neo-Mods, music and fashions which aren’t constricted by the self-conscious rules and restraints upon which cliquey European modernists constantly insist.
What “Swinging Japan” delivers is a 14-track compilation of raw and energetic garage tracks, plus jazzy, groovy, psychedelic tunes that have been specially selected to be part of this compilation.
Think of this album as a trip to Kingslow 1969, Carnaby Street circa 1970, with a return flight to modern day Tokyo!
- Wide audience appeal due to genre and decade crossovers.
- Specially selected by pioneers of the Mod sound.
